The 2019 Development Effectiveness Review (DER) is a comprehensive report on the performance of the Caribbean Development Bank’s (CDB’s) operations in relation to the results monitoring framework (RMF) of its 2015-2019 Strategic Plan. The four-level RMF is the central performance tool that allows CDB to translate its mandate and strategic plan into concrete actions and targets as well as tangible development outputs and outcomes.

The Report assesses the development trends, progress, and challenges across the Caribbean and, in particular, Borrowing Member Countries and looks at how CDB operations have contributed to their national, regional, and global development goals and commitments, including the Sustainable Development Goals. It also focuses on how efficiently and effectively CDB manages its operations.
